Rusty Richards' eyes misted as he read the poem he wrote when the colt he'd raised and trained died an unexpected death six weeks ago. Alone, I switch the light off in his stall and say goodbye. Who made this damned old rule that us old cowboys shouldn't cry? Faint moonlight now is all that fills the "overkill" corral that will always hold the memory of "Specky Boy," my pal.

Who says these Dodgers have no speed? Saturday night against Atlanta, Tim Belcher said his fastball "jumped out of my hand." Lenny Harris set up the winning run by nearly jumping out of his shoes. And Mike Sharperson's eyes were quick enough to spot a pitch coming out reliever Mike Stanton's hand, enabling him to make four consecutive wise choices in drawing a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth to give the Dodgers a 1-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves before 23,192 at Dodger Stadium.

When Steve Dulson, the organizer of the Anaheim-based Living Tradition Folk Music Series, remarks how one four-letter word makes some people cringe, he's talking about "folk." "A lot of people are scared of the word because of its link to protest songs, and singers like Joan Baez, Peter, Paul & Mary, and the Kingston Trio," he says. "To fight that image, sometimes I think it'd be better to call our series 'The Acoustic Music Series,' like the one held at the Pasadena Neighborhood Church."
